Do you have a concert coming up and have no idea what to do in order to get ready for the concert? Here is a list of some things to try and remember to do before you get to your concert, so that you can have the ultimate concert experience.

1. Buy your tickets

If you already haven't make sure you buy your tickets so you can go to the concert that you really want to go to!

2. Listen to all of the artists that are going to be there

Look up the new albums and songs and have their music on repeat, whether it is the opening act or the actual artist. This way you can easily sing along with them.

3. Pick the perfect concert outfit

Try to plan out the outfit you are wearing to the concert ahead of time so that way you don't decide last minute. T shirt or tank top? Shorts or pants? Flip flops or sneakers?

4. Make a concert countdown

Who wouldn't be excited to go to a concert? Start a countdown so that you can know exactly how much longer until you get to be rocking out at the concert.

5. Clear out space on your phone

Want to get those up close pictures or a video of the artist singing your favorite song? Take it from personal experiences make sure you have enough space for all the new pictures in videos, so that you don't have to try and make space in the middle of the concert.

6. Bring a portable charger

For the same reason as number five, you want to make sure your phone doesn't die in the middle of the concert, especially if there is multiple acts. Bring a portable charger so you don't have to worry about the chance of it dying.

7. Save money

Who doesn't like to get concert merch? Whether you go all out or just want to get the tour shirt, make sure you have money to buy them and to buy anything else you might want that day.

8. Be ready to lose your voice

Who doesn't scream at the top of their lungs during a concert to sing a long with the artist? Bring cough drops and just prepare to lose your voice because it is almost guaranteed to happen.

9. Follow the artists on social media

See what updates they have about possibly your concert or the tour in general. Who knows there may be a few surprises in store.

10. Freak out as the days get closer

Eventually you will start to realize that the concert is just a few days away! Start to get excited and freak out as you get closer and closer to singing your heart out on the day of the concert.

11. Make all final preparations for the concert

How are you getting to the concert? What time are you trying to get there? What all are you going to do before the concert starts? These are all key ways to preparing for an easy concert day!

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

High School Has Taught Me To Not Forget My Hobbies Even If It Can Be Easy To Do So

Never let go of your hobbies

29

As a junior in high school right now, there's always something to do- homework, grades, extra curriculars, etc. If you're not doing something productive, it usually means that you're wasting time. With everything happening at the same time, it's easy to forget the things you like to do and your own hobbies that you would normally do in your free time.

When I was a little kid, one of my favorite things to do was art. As I painted and drew more pictures, I got better and better each time. I never went to any classes but I would watch YouTube videos and se my creativity to draw and paint whatever came to mind. Sometimes, I would even sell my artwork and make small profits.

Art was my stress reliever. It was my "run away" destination. But, because it's time consuming and requires a lot more effort than my daily schedule can handle, I lost my connection with art. School and other extracurriculars had overridden my passion and love for art. When I do get free time, usually during the summer, I try to paint whenever I can and feel like it.

What I learned from this distancing with one of my biggest stress relievers was that even though school can almost make it feel impossible to have free time, it's always important to incorporate your hobbies into your day/ week. It's always a good thing to save time for your interests and what you like to do.
